Cults-The Masonic Lodge (Freemasonry)

I have taught about cults and heresies for many years. Cults and heresies have their own tendencies and characteristics apart from doctrinal problems. Some are smart and calculating and others are deceptive and totally dishonest.

The Masonic Lodge (Freemasonry) is a totally dishonest and deceptive cult. It is also the most in-depth cult I have ever come across. There are layers and layers and layers of teaching, deception, and falsehoods that riddle this belief system.

Please understand that I know that this will upset some, especially wives and daughters who have had husbands and fathers that were/are part of this demonic organization.

Lastly, I remember years ago while teaching this in a church I was forewarned not to teach this if I knew what was good for me. It did not stop me then and it will not stop me now.


About Jesus

Freemasonry says…
-"In his private petitions a man may petition God or Jehovah, Allah or Buddha,
Mohammed or Jesus; he may call upon the God of Israel or the First Great Cause.
In the Masonic Lodge he hears petition to the Great Architect of the Universe,
finding his own deity under that name. A hundred paths may wind upward
around a mountain; at the top they meet." (Carl H. Claudy, "Introduction to Freemasonry." p. 38)

The Word of God says…
-Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the Life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me. (John.14:6)
-Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)


About God

Freemasonry says…
-"...Since every man's conception of God must be proportioned to his mental
cultivation, and intellectual powers, and moral excellence. God is, as man
conceives Him, the reflected image of man himself. (Albert Pike, "Morals and Dogma," 14th Degree, p. 234)
-"The only personal God Freemasonry accepts is humanity in toto...Humanity therefore is the only personal God that there is." (J.D. Buck, "Mystic Masonry," p. 216)
-"The Absolute is Reason. Reason IS, by means of itself. It IS because IT IS...If God IS, HE IS by Reason." (Albert Pike, "Morals and Dogma," 28th Degree. p. 737)


But the Word of God says…
-In the Beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Gen. 1:1)
-For there are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. (1John. 5:7)
-God said undo Moses, I AM THAT I AM... (Ex. 3:14)


About the Bible

Freemasonry says…
"...the literal meaning (of the Bible) is for the vulgar only." (Albert Pike, "Digest of Morals and Dogma," p. 166) "Masonry makes no profession of Christianity...but looks forward to the time when the labor of our ancient brethren shall be symbolized by the erection of a spiritual temple...in which there shall be but one alter and one worship; one common altar of Masonry on which the Veda, Shastra, Sade, Zend-Avesta, Koran and Holy Bible shall lie...and at whose shrine the Hindoo, the Persian, the Assyrian, the Chaldean, the Egyptian, the Chinese, the
Mohammedan, the Jew and the Christian may kneel..." ("The Kentucky Monitor." Fellowcraft Degree, p. 95)
-The removal of the name of Jesus and references to Him in Bible verses used in the ritual are "slight but necessary modifications." (Albert Mackey, "Masonic Ritualist." p. 272)


But the Word of God says…
-The Words of the Lord are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. (Psa. 12:6)
-All Scripture is given by inspiration of God... (2Tim. 3:16)
-...if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them. (Isa. 8:20)


About Salvation

Freemasonry says…
-"These three degrees (1st, 2nd, 3rd) thus form a perfect an harmonious whole,
nor can it be conceived that anything can be suggested more, which the soul of
man requires." (Daniel Sickles, "Ahimon Rezon or Freemason's Guide." p. 196) --"If we with suitable true devotion maintain our Masonic profession, our faith will become a beam of light an bring us to those blessed mansions where we shall be eternally happy with God, the Great Architect of the Universe." (Daniel Sickles, "Ahimon Rezon or Freemason's Guide." p. 79)
-"...salvation by faith and the vicarious atonement were not taught as now interpreted, by Jesus, nor are these doctrines taught in the esoteric scriptures. They are later and ignorant perversions of the original doctrines." (J.D. Buck, "Mystic Masonry." p. 57)


But the Word of God says…
-As it is written. There is none righteous no not one: (Rom. 3:10)
-For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Rom. 3:23)
-For He hath made Him {Jesus} to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might
be made the righteousness of God in Him. (2Cor. 5:21)
-For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of
God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Eph. 2:8-9)


About Satan

Freemasonry says…
-"The conviction of all men that God is good led to a belief in a devil..." (Albert Pike, "Morals and Dogma." 19th Degree, p. 324)
-"...there is no rebellious demon of Evil, or Principle of Darkness coexistent and in eternal controversy with God, or the Principle of Light..." (Albert Pike, "Morals and Dogma," 32nd Degree, p.859)


But the Word of God says…
-Ye are of your father, the devil...he is a liar, and the father of it. (John.8:44)
-Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (Jas. 4:7)
-Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of
the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
(Eph. 6:11-12)
-...your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. (1Pet. 5:8)


About Honesty

The Mason Doctrine teaches that it's right to lie, if necessary to protect the secrets
of the Lodge, or to protect brother Masons by concealing his wrongdoing. It can
even be right to deliberately deceive sincere Masons seeking to learn the lessons
and secrets of Masonry.

Freemasonry says…
-"The Blue Degrees are but the portico (porch) of the Temple. Part of the symbols
are displayed there to the initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false
interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended
that he shall imagine that he understands them...their true explication
(explanation / understanding) is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of
Masonry." (Albert Pike, "Morals and Dogma," 30th Degree, p. 189)
-"You must conceal all crimes of your brother Masons...and should you be summoned as a witness against a brother Mason be always sure to shield him...It may be perjury to do this, it is true, but you're keeping your obligations." (Ronayne, "Handbook of Masonry." p. 183)
-"Furthermore do I promise and swear that a Master Mason's secrets, given to me in charge as such, and I knowing them to be such, shall remain as secure and inviolable in my breast as in his own, when communicated to me, murder and treason excepted; and they left to my own election." (Master Mason's / 3rd Degree Oath of Obligation)


But the Word of God says…
-Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. (Ex. 20:16)
-Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another. (Lev.
19:11)
-...lie not to one another. (Col. 3:9)
-...all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death. (Rev 21:8)


About Secrecy and Blood Oaths

Freemasonry says…
Secrecy is indispensable in a Mason of whatever degree." (Albert Pike, "Morals and Dogma," 4th Degree, p. 109)
-I...do hereon most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear that I will always hail, ever conceal and never reveal any of the arts, parts or points of the secret arts any mysteries of ancient Freemasonry which I have received, am about to receive, or may hereafter be instructed in..." (Oath of Obligation, Entered Apprentice/1st Degree, and include in all subsequent degrees, always on penalty of mayhem and violent death) "
-...binding myself under no less a penalty that that of having my body severed in twain, my bowels taken out and burned to ashes, the ashes scattered to the four winds of heaven..." (from the Oath of Obligation, Master Mason/Third Degree) "
-...In willful violation whereof may I incur the fearful penalty of having my eyeballs pierced to the center with a three-edged blade, my feet flayed and I be forced to walk the hot sands upon sterile shores of the Red Sea until the flaming Sun shall strike me with a livid plague, and may Allah, the god of Arab, Moslem and Mohammedan, the god of our fathers, support me to the entire fulfillment of the same." (from the Oath of Obligation, Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine ["Shriners"])


But the Word of God says…
-I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple...and in secret have I said nothing. (John. 18:20)
-Provide things honest in the sight of all men. (Rom. 12:17)
-Thou shalt not kill (murder). (Ex. 20:13)
-But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. (Jas. 5:12)
-Seek the Truth through the Word of God!
"...ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John. 8:32)

Great post Mr. DT.

Boy, was I off in space somewhere. Growing up in the south, I noticed the Masonic Lodge decals on the back of cars and always associated it with a contractors Association - based on the logo.

I do not see it as much where I live now but this post has really enligthened me to what my thoughts will be the next time I am behind a car with the Masonic Lodge decal.

Thanks for the great blog.

Sincerely,
Steven G.

Dear Brother,
I have a brother-in-law that is a Methodist lay pastor and also involved with the Masons. How should I go about showing him why he should give up his associations with this cult? Would your posting be a good starting point?

Christian,
I think letting your Brother-in-law see the post is a good starting point. But...do not expect him to be happy about the post. The good thing about it is that the post will get you and he talking about it.

The Masons are still a force to be dealt with. But as we know, the Truth (Jesus Christ) will set them free.

Thanks,

Albert Pike:

"That which we must say to a crowd is - We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition.

To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th degrees - The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian Doctrine.

If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay whose deeds prove his cruelty, perdify and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests, calumniate him?

Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also god. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two gods: darkness being necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive.

Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophical religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil."

Instructions to the 23 Supreme Councils of the World, July 14, 1889. Recorded by A.C. De La Rive in on page 588



The testimony of 33 degree freemason proves that high degree freemasons worship satan in religion of freemasonry. Adonay is one of the Hebrew names of God. High degree freemasons believe that Lucifer (satan) is God of light and God of good, and he struggles for humanity against the God of the Bible (Adonay). High degree freemason teaches that the God of the Bible is God of darkness and evil.

Evil satanic spirits and satan have deceived high degree freemasons to believe that the true and right God (Adonay- God of the Bible) is God of darkness and evil, and that satan is good god. Evil satan is not good and not God, but totally evil spirit.

Throughout of the history evil satan has distorted the truth of the word of God, in which evil satan distorts the word of God oppositely. Evil satan begun this evil distortion in the paradise. The Lord God said to Adam and Eve in the paradise: "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die".

Evil satan distorted word of God oppositely by saying: "Yes, has God said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden"? Evil satan continued: "You shall not surely die: For God does know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil".

Evil satan distorted the word of God oppositely and like this way he has done throughout of the history. The aim of evil satan is to made evil as good and good as evil, cancel the word of God changing its meaning oppositely. The goal of evil satan is to deceive people to worship him; to worship evil satan by sins and lies. Like this way evil satan has deceived freemasons and also many others.

The goal of evil satan is in every way distort the word of God and shame and destroy the real Jesus' disciples. It is very clear that Jesus' disciple can't be a freemason. Evil satan is prince of darkness and evil, and God of the Bible is true God.
